Man your offense is definitely gonna be nasty, Some guys are starting slow, but I dont see your offense being any issues down the line. Based solely on FA's I would consider picking up Colon, he could be a bust, but he is pitching for boston so if he stays healthy i think 10+ wins is not out of the question. Offensively really don't see any of those FAs doing better than anyone you have.

Help?

Good God, how did you end up with that stacked lineup?! Anyway, I would look to deal Ortiz - his knee situation worries me - I know he has played with it for awhile but something has to give eventually. If you can get a stud starter straight up for him I would do it (he just went in my league for Brandon Webb). Gagne is hurt again, too...

Your team looks pretty solid to me. Trading Ortiz for a stud ace would be a nice move. But your team looks good as it is.

That is an impressive lineup. So in what H2H categories do you feel you need improvement? Are they any in particular that you're losing every week? I wouldn't really bother with the FA that you've listed. I also would not trade HanRam, D. Wright, or Utley as far as position players go, but would shop anyone else if there is someone you're targeting.

Sorry this isn't a black and white response but it's tough to offer that for this question.

i would drop griffey for guillen although it is cool to have him on ur team when he nails 600. no one else on that list stands out, maybe snyder for pudge. I wouldn't make any trades ur lineup is vicious and u just gotta be patient with guys like howard/hawpe etc.

thanks for mine. i agree with the notion of dealing papi for an ace. papi has been heating up so his value is near back to where it should be, and i also don't trust his knee. also, not a hawpe fan. wil hit you some HRs but he gets platooned vs. lefties and, believe it or not, i like mike cameron over him. cameron could go 20-20 now that he's in a better hitter's park (than SD)

I would probably drop Gagne for a guy like J. Guthrie..... you could use another SP and maybe look to upgrade in your OF...

Interesting lineup!

Definatly drop Gagne and pick up a solid starter (Colon, D. Cabrerra, A. Miller, J. Chamberlin?) or J. Cust can do a lot when he gets hot.

Thanks for looking at mine! ;-D

Your hitting (aside from Rodriguez) looks perfect, and I wouldn't change much even though I see a guy on the FA list that I like (Swisher). As for pitching, I'd drop Lilly, but there isn't that much on the waiver wire. Maybe Ol. Perez or Bonderman, but I'm nonplussed. Your team is great as-is, anyway.
